Century Entrepreneurship Development Agency � CEDA International is a not-for-profit organization specializing in leadership, mentoring and entrepreneurship development. The organization�s vision is to create a new generation of women leaders who are economically independent and socially responsible. The organization was started in 2007 out of the great need to bridge the leadership and employment gaps among youth and women in Uganda. It provides employment and job creation skills to youth -girls and boys; women; community groups; persons with disabilities and people living with HIV/AIDS. CEDA International has established a platform through which young people and women�s voices and stories are shared and celebrated to ensure the promotion and protection of equal opportunities.
The organization provides practical skills to people to enable them become the best at whatever they choose to do and remain competitive and relevant in the changing market. The programs groom a new generation of social, political and economic leaders to bridge the leadership and employment gap in the country. Acquiring these skills brings a paradigm shift that is reframing the people�s thinking to articulate priorities and generate collective actions to take charge of their destinies and at the same time improve their communities. Our work is inspired by words of Augusto Lopez-Claros at the World Economic Forum �It is indeed very likely that there is a strong and positive correlation between Africa�s economic growth and the unleashing of female talent.� ...
